Sony, as promised at the Tokyo Games Show in September, has rolled out the global software update for its PlayStation 3 console to make it possible for users to now watch 3D Blu-ray films.

The 3.50 software update, which should be waiting for you when you turn on your console next will allow you to watch the wide range of 3D Blu-ray titles available (in the UK that's like one or two).

Of course you will need a 3D enabled television to benefit from the new feature.

Additional new features in the 3.50 update include Facebook Integration allowing developers to create PS3 games that have more interaction with Facebook.

Once compatible PS3 titles are available, PS3 users can choose to access public information on Facebook – including user name, profile, uploaded photos and friends list – to enhance their gameplay experience.

There is also now a "Grief Reporting Function" says Sony that lets users send claim reports directly from the XMB for any inappropriate messages they receive from other PlayStation Network users. This feature is accessible from the option menu of the messages list in the FRIENDS category.

Now you'll you've got to worry about in finding a 3D Blu-ray movie to watch.
